College News and Departmental Notes: Rural Education

by Departmental notes - 1922

Students at Teachers College interested in rural education enjoyed a rare opportunity in attending the fifth annual conference of the American Country Life Association, which met at the College November 9 to 11. The program opened Thursday evening, November 9, with greetings from Dean Russell and an address by the president, Dr. Kenyon L. Butterfield of Amherst, Mass. Following this, members of the Association were the guests of the Rural Club of Teachers College at a reception and entertainment featuring rural education in foreign lands. On Friday morning the program centered about the education of the country child, with addresses by Dr. O. G. Brim of Cornell University, Professor W. C. Bagley of Teachers College, and Mr. Lee Driver of Pennsylvania. On the afternoon of the same day adult education in the country community was emphasized with chief addresses by Dean A. R. Mann of the Cornell College of Agriculture, New York; Mr. Carl Milan of the American Library Association; and Miss Florence Ward of the United States Department of Agriculture, Washington, D. C. On Friday evening the annual conference dinner of the Association was held. President Butler of Columbia University acted as toastmaster, and the chief addresses of the evening were given by Mr. H. C. Wallace, Secretary of Agriculture, Washington, D. C.; Dr. Kenyon L. Butterfield, Amherst, Mass.; and Mr. Swamidos of India. On Saturday forenoon the program dealt with the ethical and religious resources of the country community, and on Saturday afternoon with effective rural leadership. This conference was one of the most outstanding gatherings on rural life ever held in Teachers College, and large numbers of students and rural education leaders both in college and in the vicinity of New York attended.
